New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed she has no problem saying no to 'nasty' hopefuls to audition for the show. The 22-year-old singer also said that she wasn't going to be a judge who brought into silly sob stories or excuses from auditionees.

Speaking about how she was coping saying no to some hopefuls, the N-Dubz star revealed: "If they're nasty, then it's easy."

"But it's hard if they’re really emotional… if someone’s passed away then you listen but if their cat’s died then no way!"


Showing she wasn't going to be a judge who stayed quiet, Tulisa slammed an auditionee last week for being too cocky when she performed for the panel in Manchester.

"You seemed a bit too confident… when you first came out you put me off straight away. You could've done so much better," she said.

When the hopeful claimed the shoe was fake, Tulisa hit back saying: "This is a real show, real people watching, we're a real panel and you're a real person showing us what you're about."

Partner in crime Louis Walsh then piped up to blast the wannabe for only being a good enough as a backing singer.

Tulisa, Louis and fellow X Factor judges Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland reunite in Cardiff for the next round of auditions on June 29.
